Home Amp/Preamp Asylum

Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

Well the designer, Michael Elliott, started with pure tube designs.....

....subsequently made the hybrid designs and then, when he started Aria Audio, went back to pure tube designs. So the hybrid designs are not a reflection of some overall philosophy, but his thoughts at a given point in time. And that time was long ago.

There are many fine solid-state designs, hybrid designs and pure tube designs. So more than one way to skin a cat. IMHO the way that the power supplies are implemented probably has a greater contribution to the resulting sound than the audio circuit topology, just my two cents.
